W 2004

Watching W do a speech in Springfield Missouri. He is nailing it. Nailing Kerry. 'They think the heart and soul of America is in Hollywood. We say the heart and soul of America is right here in Missouri.'


How could that pompous Massachussets ass actually say "Any attack will be met with a swift and certain response response". How could he say that?

If this is a taste of things to come for the election campaign, Kerry is sunk.

How could he ever have said that.

Imagine John Howard saying 'vote for me, if we get bombed here in Oz, I will react in a swift and certain fashion'. He would be publicly flogged. Latham too, for that matter, and even the acne mouthed bulbous nosed doofus hasn't been so stupid as to capitulate to terror in such an overt way. Imagine Silvio Berlusconi, or Tony Blair, saying 'it's alright, it we get hit I will ensure the clean up will be swift and certain'.

Gi. Fa.

You Go Georgie. Your job is to see it does not happen again in the US. And Howard's job is to make sure it doesn't happen in Oz, like it happened to Aussies in Bali.

O McGeogh, you've done it again
Yeah well yeah. I lack creativity.

Whatever. It is late.

I have just watched Absolutely Fabulous, which was crap except for this great title for a porn flick "The four dimensions of Lusty McCrack", which gave me the giggles for, like, five whole minutes. Add that to the disgusting Brit comedy series Two Pints o' Lager and Packet of Crisps I saw Monday night on cable, which featured this line from slapper mum talking to her slutty daughter "The 70's was one big shag, darling, everyone was in everyone every minute. Whydya think legwarmers were so popular? Had to have something to catch the drips". Laugh. That set of giggles went for, like, ten minutes.

And this has precisely what to do with Paul McGeogh in the SMH?

Nothing really, except by way of contrast.

The man peddles in misery.

Not giggles. Not even for one minute.

This story shows McGeogh, in Amman Jordan now, apparently has some kind of connection with the tribe that is threatening to behead a Jordanian businessman employer of a bloke who has been kidnapped in Iraq, who is himself threatened with a beheading if the Jordanian businessman does not capitulate to the demands of kidnappers. The kidnappee being a tribesman of the folks threatening the Jordanian businessman. 

Urgh, you got that? Read the story already and come back. I am struggling with this. 


The tribe of the bloke kidnapped is insisting that the kidnappers get the result that they want plus a bunch of money.

Make you kinda think maybe they got a rort going where they "kidnap" one of their own and then extort ransom apparently independently of the kidnappers?

Makes me think that way.

A wog way of thinking, fer sure. But hey, it is what it is.

And McGeogh apparently has this scoop, although as per usual his text is filled with unnamed sources and third hand bullshit.

McGeogh. Human legwarmer.

Urgh.  Prof Bunyip does not much care for McGeogh either.

Best Democrat Coventioneery coverage.

And best catch on dullard droner Kerry from Mark Steyn:

I will stand up and struggle, as others have, to try to get that right balance between violence and sex and things

O Perfect. 

Send John Kerry - to the back of the newagents behind the swinging louvre doors - and when he finds that balance, tell him to tell the rest of us, eh?

If Labor holds power Federally as well as in all the States and Territories...
Labor would say that this is a good thing because it will enable consensus on shared matters like health and education across all jurisdictions.
But I would say that it is a bad thing, because it will enable consensus on lifting the GST from 10%. 
Remember, to lift the GST there has to be agreement across Federal and State/Territory. Everyone agreeing.
Every Labor government agreeing to make more money? What is the likelihood of that?
I would say veryu likely - after all, those books for foetuses are not going to publish themselves, and those welfare payments to the out-of-work plastic bag manufacturers have to come from somewhere.
This Labor cannot manage its budget. Latham is leader and he is all big public works and huge spending. Cream is treasurer and he does not know the difference between $800m and zero.
I do not understand why economics writers do not write more about this.
....O, Maybe they do. I do not really read ecomonic writers much to tell the truth.

I had forgotten how verbose Kim Beazley is.
He has been on the Sunday show on Channel 9 and on Compass on the ABC. I think with the former the interview was done post his appointment to the ALP's front bench. But re compass it was definitely recorded before that change.
How do I know?
Because he was introduced as a former Minister of Defence.
And because he was remarkably free with his negativity towards the US. Sample? "Iraq and Afghanistan have been completely botched".
Tell that to the Afghans returning home having fled in terror of the Talibanners. And while you are at it tell it to the Iraqis flooding back into their country having fled it while Saddam was still in power with his awful sons waiting to keep the dream alive.
Afghanistan and Iraq are not completely botched. They were each of them complete disasters - ecomonically and culturally - before the interventions. How do I know? Because folks were fleeing from there. Folks only flee lousiness. Not goodness. It is a simple rule and worth remembering.
Now, they are fledgling democracies. Election in Afghanistan in September. One in Iraq before January.
Afghanistan is a basketcase outside Kabul, I have read, and the poppy growing business is back with a vengeance following the lost grip of the Talibanners, who, in the only policy of theirs with which I agree wholeheartedly, treated drugs as banned substances. So, the Taliban should never have been molested by the West? Do not be retarded.
The Taliban fools refused to give up Osama and Mullah Omar, the idiots. They worked on a bluf and it got called.
Iraq is a huge country making billions a day in oil revenue and racked in parts by pointless ceaseless violence engaged in by retarded folks who do not approve of Saddam's removal. So, Saddam should never have been molsted by the West? Gi. Fa.
Saddam refused to come clean about his weapons status. He led us all a merry dance and we were left relying on intelligence from intelligence agencies around the world, and it has been revealed to be quite flawed gear. But what other gear was there to work on? Saddam was acting for all the world like a jackass who had weapons, and every intelligence agency in the world believed he had them and had some weak intelligence to support that idea.
2+2=4, and the war was 100% Saddam's fault.
Just another mad dictator trying to bluff the West.
Who lost.
I wish Beazely would have said something along the lines of the following. Violent terrorism is a serous threat and acting on intelligence is the best we can. It is better than acting without any intelligence at all. The key lesson to learn is to improve intelligence.
Instead we get a narky nonsense about 100% failure that is plainly not true.
He always was verbose. Now I am thinking he is wrong.
Bummer cos Bomber is a likeable guy.

:: Saturday, 17 July 2004 ::
Paul McGeogh of the SMH has interviewed 2 Iraqi blokes.
And between the two of them those blokes allege the following:
On or about the third weekend in June 2004, three weeks after he came to the role of Iraqi Interim Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi was in the courtyard adjacent to the maximum-security cell block at the Al-Amariyah security centre in Baghdad's south-western suburbs. He had made a surprise visit to the security centre and he was with Iraq's Interior Minister together with about 12 Iraqi policemen and 4 Americans in Allawi's security detail (plus another 5 or 6 Americans, I think, frankly this is unclear and there were also Iraqibodyguards for Allawi but it is not clear whether they were in the courtyard) when he took his pistol which he wears on his hip and shot 7 inmates who were lined up against a wall or 3-4 metres in front of it, killing 6 by shooting them each one time in the head, and wounding the 7th in either the head or the chest. The inmates were youngish men.  They were alleged to have committed crimes involving substantial deaths (50 each) of Iraqis. The bodies were put into a Nissan 4wD by Iraqi members of Allawis security detail. The bodies were buried in the desert. The police chief told all the Iraqi policemen present that they were not to speak of the incident.
McGeogh has conducted two separate interviews, one with each bloke. One of the blokes is a dishdashah wearing Iraqi. The other is definitely an Iraqi because of the kind of language used- pure wog.  Neither bloke has been paid for the interviews. Both were happy with what they say they saw too. All they asked from McGeogh was that he not reveal their identities. McGeogh has respected their wishes.  
From the article McGeogh says he found the blokes not the other way round. McGeogh must have heard the rumours - they were referred to on Zeyad's blog so lots of folks had heard them - and he has put the feelers out to see if there is any substance to them.
And he says he found these 2 blokes and interviewed them.
That must mean that the rumours are fairly precise - not just, as Zeyad said, that Allawi has been killing folks. But that he did it at that security centre.
Otherwise how could McGeogh find his 2 blokes? 2 blokes how happened to be at the shooting?
McGeogh asserts (and I mean that cos he asserted to us all that the US did not control the airport when they clearly did) that "up to" 30 folks "may have been" in the courtyard, and that The SMH has established the names of 3 of the 7 blokes said to have been shot in that courtyard. 
Allawi denies the allegation and says he has never visited that security centre and one of his minders has said Allawi visits lots of security centres because he is PM. I guess the two positions could be in conflict but they equally might not be. Allawi says he does not wear a pistol and his minder backs him up on that.
Now, Allawi has declined to allow McGeogh any access to the security centre. And a bureaucrat called by McGeogh has declined to give information about the state of the 3 named inmates - living or dead. 
So McGeogh has not got anything more than the words given to him by the 2 blokes.
They must have been in the courtyard to see what they say they saw. Both blokes said they think the 7 blokes killed deserved to die because they were terrorists who kill policemen. So the interviewees are 2 out of the 12 Iraqi policemen working at the security centre and in the courtyard. I think that is a fair conclusion. General Raad Abdullah, the officer in charge of the complex knew what had happened and had told his boys not to speak about the incident. So I think that places Raad in the courtyard. He could possibly be one of the McGeogh interviewees, but, jeez, you'd have to presume he has not broken his own directive of silence to talk to exclusively to a journalist.
Are there holes? Oh Yah. The interviewees do not agree on when it happened. In fact they are not clear about that critical information - why use the phrase "third weekend in June"? Why not njust write Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 June? They cannot agree on where the 7th inmate was shot - head or chest. And then there is the pure hearsay of the burying of the bodies in the desert. Neither bloke says he was there doing the burying and only one of them says the bodies were even driven away in Nissans.
This is McGeogh at his worst. A cheap Abu Graib shot that he should have edited out but he simply couldn't resist. It is what makes all of his reporting so suss.
I reckon McGeogh has some problems. This story seems to me to have gone to press prematurely. McGeogh's only evidence is 3 names of the 7 supposedly dead guys but how did he get them? He does not say they came from his 2 interviewees. He says "The SMH has established the names...". What the heck does that mean? How did The SMH "establish the names" if they did not come from the interviewees? And if they did come from the interviewees why not just write that so it is clear?
Something's up with that.
I reckon he has been fed a bunch of information from 2 blokes who support Allawi. And McGeogh has got some extra stuff too - the stuff he needed to find the 2 blokes, and the 3 names - from other sources.
Maybe he is doing the good journo thing of always holding something back for later. In which case this story will grow.
Or maybe he has shot his load.
I would like to know one way or the other.
In his more detailed piece for the SMH McGeogh says he first heard the rumours in the Palestine Hotel at Bagdah - jounalist central, and super negative journalist central at that. He says his interviewees are courageous to have given the interviews and they were reluctant to speak until McGeogh guaranteed anonymity. No matter about that guarantee, though. The men are in fear for their lives. He explains their inaccuracy about the date because of traditional wog haziness - if it doesn't happen on a religious festival day then no one can pinpoint the real date. He places great store in the absence of "convincing denials" by Allawi - now, that's a bit subjective isn't it Paul - and, get this, the fact Allawi did not bother to respond to a Seynour Hersch hit piece in the New Yorker magazine.
That last characteristic - the ol' absence of evidence means evidence of absence - is the bullshit cannard pedalled by every anti-war leftie jackass, from WMD now to this.
McGeogh does his story no credit by making this central to his thesis.   
Now I have just seen on SkyNews that McGeogh has left Iraq fearing for his life. Christ. The piece only went to press today. This stinks. He seems to me to be acting completely in concert with his own thesis that Allawi is a killer.
On Saturday 19 June Allawi was in Musayyib looking at a sabotaged pipeline from the poweplant, according to The Guardian and The AustralianThe powerplant is 110 kilometres south of Baghdad. Al-Aramiyah is in the south west of Baghdad. A 110 km round trip is doable pretty quick in normal worlds but who knows in Iraq - not me that's for sure. Maybe some Iraqi experienced folks know about the movement potential from the Musayyib powerplant. In any case, Allawi also met briefly with three US Senators.
On Sunday 20 June he was in Baghdad negotiating with Al Sadr to end the Madhi Army rubbish, negotiating into the night about the handover of Saddam Hussein into Iraqi custody and announcing the possibility of marshall law. And giving a phone interview to The Telegraph. In the zone of Baghdad, therefore in the zone of Al-Aramiyah security centre.
Thursday 17 June was the bad army recruitment bombing in Baghdad that killed 35 Iraqis with the second bombing north of the city that killed another 10. Allawi was at the scene of the first bombing with the Interior Minister and Paul Wolfowitz was in town at the same time. You would think that, as an Iraqi policeman - part of Iraq's security apparatus -that would be a day you would remember. You would also think it is the sort of disgraceful event that might make the man in charge of the country shoot some criminals in the head, either on the same day or some time in the following three or four days.
Hmmm. That rather trite observation has gotten me precisely nowhere.
Moving on.
Friday 18 June Paul Wolfowitz is still in town. Presumably Allawi spends some time with him. Can't find much online about this day except that the Fallujah bombing to get Zarqawi happened. The news online is therefore mostly ab out that incident and not following Allawi around. But Friday is super Muslim prayer day, right? So, the policemen would have to remember if it was a prayer day because, as McGeogh pointed out, religion guides memory. Right?
How about Monday 21 June? Plenty going on involving disgusting acts of violence by the Brave Iraqi Resistance. But nothing concrete about Allawi's movements. That is, nothing that I have found on a superfast search.
My point? McGeogh should have done this linky legwork before going to press. He has published really explosive claims and he has not got enough to back them up. He published with so little supporting information for his claims that he does not have a lay down misere hand. Now he has fled the country so he cannot finish his story properly. He has fled because, he says, he is afraid for his life. This is now all about Paul and not about Allawi - Paul's halfway work has been done.
I think the timeline shows that something could have happened around 19 and 20 June. It is not like Allawi was in London for a week, you know?
Whatever. We'll be hearing more, and more and more from McGeogh.

Palestinian education.

Any person on the face of the planet who thinks the Israelis are as awful as the Palestinians is wrong.



The Palestinians are way worse. They could let their kids turn 18 and let them volunteer for an army to fight Israel. But noo. No time to waste, eh, Yasser? Get 'em young, and whlie they cannot realise what a jackass you are.

This video thing is really priceless and it is an perfect vision of Palestinian pycho pathology. They actualy think a training camp for terrorists is a good thing.

Christ, they even give the kiddies a diploma.

You can bleat at me all you like about having travelled to the MidEast and therefore knowing so much more than everybody else about the true situation in Israel and the 'occupied terroritories' (yes, I mean it like that) (or as I prefer to think of them, the bits Israel won fair and square in the 1967 war) and blah blah blah, but if at the end of the day you canot see that Palestinians have decided, deliberately to live like shit for the past 56 years instead of getting on with their lives and living like decent men and women, then really you are just a stinking Jew hater.

Cos nothing else can explain such a goddam unbalanced approach.

They are training their kids to kill.

And they're proud of it.

I tell ya, that wall cannot go up fast enough.

Cos when you have a society that has gone bad, like Sicilian mafia society in the 70's and 80's, you need the good elements to finally get jack of the badness.

In Sicily the non-mafia population stopped with the silence, the tacit acceptance of the violence and thuggery around them, and demonstrated against the mafia, insisting on better law enforcement, on taking the game right to the mafiosi.

Good people did spomething about it. They yelled 'Basta'. Enough.

Now, we are all of us waiting for good Palestinian people to do something about their poisonous mafia.

And until they do they will remain, like Sicily 20 years ago, a joke land of violence.

But without the really good food.

Italy's very own Tampa.

And sadly, the Italians have blinked. Oz has very successfully cut the people smugglers into our parts well and truy outta business. And that is a good thing. At least in this case the Italians have arrested the crew which was effectively smuggling the folks into Italy after having first gone past Malta.

Seriously, read it an weep.

Right to the threats to throw themselves overboard and the lying about where they come from and the cruising past a safe haven and into a preferred haven.

Sound familiar Marian Wilkinson and David Marr? Hmmm? Julian Burnside?

The Italians have got to stiffen up, you know? Oz has. We have removed just about all likelihood that people smugglers will lie and take money off desperate people. Ain't nobody in harms way in our waters no more ('cept those mad Uruguayans with their Patagonian Ugfish fixation, or whatever it is).

But Europe, and mostly Italy, has 'em still coming in in droves.

And that is not a good thing. I am with Oriana Fallaci on this. But what can you when the Pope is weighing in against common sense. All short term compassion and no long term salvation.

How pathetic, how violently thuggish and pathetic.

The Brave Iraqi Mafia kidnap a Philippino fellow and demand that the Philippino peace keepers, all 21 of them I think, slated to leave on 20 August 2004 after their 1 year assignment is up, leave Iraq.

G'uh, they are going anyway, turds. Why kidnap him now? Because of your retardation? Now they are so embarrassed by their idiocy the Brace Iraqi Mafia is demanding that the Philipinos get out by 20 July.

What for? What difference does a month make?

No difference at all.

The whole sorry disgusting episode is aimed solely at getting Gloria Arroyo and the Philippines to jump to the Brave Iraqi Mafia's demands.

If she had balls, which I always thought she did, she would extend the term of her peacekeepers as a finger up to the Brave Iraqi Mafia.

Oh, pardon me. They are Resistance fighters, according to Tari Ali.

And Minutemen, of course, for Michael Moore.

See, this is clear as a bell to me - these kidnapping scumbags are Mafia.

The scum of the earth.

Nothing more nothing less.

They killed one Italian and released the other three. Their demand for the release? Italians were to demomonstrate in Italy against the war. Now, why would the kidnappers settle for just a demonstration instead of demanding removal of troops? Well, they began with the demand but soon found it was not going to wash. Because they knew Berlusconi is no Arroyo. And they knew Italian communists who hate Berli love a demonstration. So, go with the demo, and that will show our incredible maniliness to get Italians to walk around the most gorgeous cities on earth.

Some feat, terrorists.

These guys, and they are all guys, are truly disgusting. They would be beneath contempt except we need some contempt to be sure we can really beat these guys,

They need to be crushed.

Christ almighty, give me strength.

Mike Seccombe and Barry Cassidy and the goodlooking chubby girl Karen Somebody on "Insiders" are on song, defending Latham from his own stupid muckracking, comprehending the US Senate Committee report as a clear determination that the Bush Lied People Died, and declaring, get this, that Latham may have fucked up Liverpool Council but that is not half as bad as Howard's egreeeeegious decision to join a Coalition to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and set that country on a course of democracy, unique among Arab countries in the Middle East.

Only Ackerman is there to attack Latham for his appalling behaviour last week, and for his trouble he gets Cassidy saying that all the dirt is coming from Liberal Party in to Ackerman's columns in the Daily Telegraph.

And Cassidy, like Stephen Loosley, ALP Poobah, on Channel 10 earlier, insists on this bullshit that Latham did not actually spread rumours himself before choking back tears about those very same rumours.

Swear to God, if it was not for Malcolm Farr in the Daily Telegraph and the Channel 9 "Sunday" show there would be no information worth taking on board about Oz politics at all.

I have bin away from blogging.

And while I was away, we got a new Interim Iraqi Government. Rock an' roll, Iraqis.

Italy was robbed in the Euro.....by themselves, you understand, but robbed nevertheless. And do not argue with me. Harrumph.

Latham has behaved like an arse.

The wogs, all of them, even the third (but specially her...urgh), got booted off Oz Big Brother quick smart cos they were all just crazy bad. No polite way of putting it, I am afraid. Just awful people, dontcha reckon? I would be ashamed but I am not - I am delighted they are off and we can let the skippies roam free and do what they do best -be fabulous. Love the skippies.

Robert Fisk has outed the Iraqi judge hearing Saddam's trial even though he was aksed not to. Turd.

Manboobs Al Sadr has given up his idiot mafia inspired insurgency in Iraq.

Oz has gotten its tax cuts and baby bonuses and the Labor Party has declared Oz citizens too stupid to know what to do with their money. Oh ya, smart.

And Media Watch has remained the domain of a partisan poof hack.

How about this bullshit from Marr on Monday night all about that stupid Brit crockumentary aired by the ABC saying the Oz government left Oz folks to die in Bali knowing the bombing at the Sari club was going to happen.


That's Alexander Downer's way of looking at it, of course. And his opinion matters. But you have to say it would take superhuman detachment for him to be a fair judge of any documentary about the tragedy. The Minister for Foreign Affairs is after all a central figure in that story.

Gi fa, ya lemon lipped queen. The Superhuman effort is for the ABC to police its own biases, as we have seen them try and fail to do over and over again.

And this:

And that's just the place for the Minister to make his case: in public. He was free to bag that BBC doco on radio and television across the land if he wished. It's called debate.

Ya. If by "debate" you mean "responding to polemic bullshit that can't be countered even by the sanest of sane folks cos its bullshit and responding to it just gives it air to breathe when it should not even need to be responded to because it should never be suggested in the first place because it's so retarded."

Marr is such a sack of shit.

What debate? You cannot debate a jackass.

Ooh. ooh. The gumment is happy to let us be killed. They like it when we are killed. Cos then, the gumment gets to....gets to....oh, they just like it when we are killed okay?? Okay?!


And I still do not own one of these dogs.

And I still have not had my beautiful little oak antique table stripped and restored.

I mean, it is like nothing is changing, man, you know?

Oh, 'cept for me. I have changed. My mind. I do not like the gay marriage at all. Not a bit. But I believe I am wrong about this. Cos I know a gay couple and they are doing the life thing, with the getting together and the buying of the house and travelling and stuff. And it came to me outta nowhere, I thought "When you getting married?". I didn't say it, but. Cos I think I don't approve.

But turns out I do.


It came as a thought, so naturally.

So there youse go. Life, huh.


I have loveloved the email whining nagging me to get back to blogging. It is never gonna be as regular as Blair or Instapundit cos I lack the drive. But I do so appreciate the connections made through this ridiculous free publishing empire.

Readers are great. Thnaks muchly, and I mean that. Alright?
